Your site has been my salvation when it came to the new IA format. I keep getting most of my material from it-themes, pictures, questions... Merci.

Astrid Augat, Spruce Creek High School, USA

I strongly recommend this website to any IB teacher. I have used it a lot in order to prepare my students for the orals. It provides a clear and step by step structure for the conduct of the examination and is full of useful tips and resources for students...
